I avoided books for teenagers too. But back when I was one it was all sports 
stories for boys and soppy semi-romances for girls, and who wanted to read 
that stuff? (Problem books burst out about the time I was graduating from 
college. In my teens I went directly to murder mysteries and kept right on 
reading kid's books regardless of what strange looks I got from the 
librarians. (I will admit I also got a bit of friction over checking out 
books from the adult collection untill I got pretty well into my teens.)
